Those Who Care
2001, India, Henriette Levaulx-Vrecourt, 31 min.
In Tia village, in an isolated area of Ladakh - North West India - lives an amchi (a local herbal doctor) and his wife. It is summer - a short season in the Indian Himalayas and the only period of the year when food harvesting is possible, after which the country gets cold and isolated for eight months. Watch as the amchi devotes his time both to this intense process as well as to healing the local community. Post-screening discussion with Peeka Trenkle.
